Gemini by The Night Flight Orchestra
What a classic rock song from my favourite supergroup of metal heads. It’s so catchy. If you haven’t seen the animated film clip, head over to YouTube and check it out.
The album “Amber Galactic” is out so expect a review to come.
House On Fire by Rise Against
A good listen but not as good as the first single release “The Violence” and the politically charged lyrics, “The bombs are getting closer everyday, That can never happen here we used to say, have these wars come to our doorstep?”..
Blister by Hell Or Highwater
Another solid track from Atreyu’s drummer Brandon Saller’s other project who takes vocal and guitar duties. Really impressed with this band.
Chasing Dragons by Adrenaline Mob
Great band. Enough said.
American Dreams by Papa Roach
This is similar to what Papa Roach became famous for. Nu Metal with a dose of Pop.
Halfway Right by Linkin Park
While You Wait by Dead Letter Circus
Nice acoustic guitars and a Tool/Perfect Circle style vocal delivery makes for a pretty good song.
Choose Your Fate by Warrant
Actually the song is the best one so far from the release but they need to call the project something else guys. It didn’t work for Sabbath without Ozzy, Lizzy with Phil and it will not work for Warrant with Jani.
Indestructible by Harem Scarem
Not as solid as the other tracks released on my radar so far from Harem Scarem but still a good listen.
Something Else by Seether
This band has some great tracks, some good tracks and some tracks that don’t resonate with me. This one falls into the good listening tracks.
Oh Lord by In This Moment
I guess I am a fan of the melodic version of the band and the albums, “The Dream” and “A Star Crossed Wasteland”.
Ever After by Andy James
He’s been around for a while but to me he is one of the new breed of guitar heroes doing the rounds. You can put words to his guitar melodies and have some super catchy syncopated metal songs happening.
God Of Temptation by The Unity
Don’t’ know much about the band, but it’s a pretty good listen.
Stargazer by Seven Kingdoms
Power Metal. Just not in the mood for it. Next
Love Is The Remedy by Jorn
It’s got a tasty riff. For those that don’t know, Jorn is the Norwegian singer that can sound like Dio, Dickinson, Tate or Coverdale on a whim. And all of those vocal influences make him unique. There are some good songs, but this one is a miss.
Still Standing Up by The Ferrymen
The fantasy cover of a masked man ferrying skeletons is hit and miss, but musically, this band is good. Again I know nothing of them, except I have heard three songs over the last three weeks on my Release Radar playlist and saved each song.
Ashes by dEMOTIONAL
Again I know nothing about this band, however each song I have heard on the Release Radar is a good listen, so I will be following up on them.
Days Of Self Destruction by CKY
They have a cool cover in red and shades of black making out dragons. The song is a miss.
Will You Want Me by 7 Days Away
The cover is black with some shades of grey making out the band logo and name. Does it remind you of some other “black” album covers?
I got into this band via illegal downloads. And when I came across them in Spotify, I clicked follow. I’m glad I did.
Skin – Kove Remix by Rag’n’Bone Man
Elton John reckons Rag’n’Bone man has the best new music out there. If you haven’t heard “Human” then you should. It’s a hit and it’s getting there slowly, as all good music does its converting people like me into it. This song is “Skin” and the Kove remix is garbage. Hear the original. Accept no substitute.
New Slaves by Vitamin String Quartet
My kids love the Vitamin String Quartet, especially their take on rock and metal bands. The Iron Maiden tribute brings back memories. For this song, it’s a NO from me.
Clouded Minds by JD Miller
Endless Roads by Liv Sin
Sister Sin was good. Liv Sin is also good. The music is excellent and rooted in that Euro Melodic Metal sound. Also check out “Endless Roads” and “The Beast Inside”.
Runaway by Bai Bang
Next. Just a bit too clichéd and poppy for me.
I’m Alive by Art Nation
It’s a good listen with a big chorus.
Wolves Reign by Wolfpakk
Musically the song is good. It just needed that Bruce Dickinson style vocal delivery.
Meet My Maker by Life Of Agony
It’s groovy and a good listen.
Blood Sick by Wednesday 13
Genesis by Aethere
Prologue (Deep Sleep) by Lonely Robot
